FSJ• Be Mine Mini Cards

Hi! I am back today to share a mini card with envelope that I made featuring a few products by Fun Stampers Journey perfect for Valentines.

020917web_bemine

One of the things I love to do when I have time to play a little bit is to make my own backgrounds. So for this card, I began by creating the main panel. I used a craft sheet to spray a little bit of Cosmic Grape and Watermelon Splashes. Then, I picked up the color by placing a Whip Cream Panel over it, I flipped it over, and I let it dry. Next, I used Heart Stencil Wall to apply Journey Gesso with a sponge, and I let it dry as well.

After that, I die cut the panel into a pierced square, and then, I stamped a sentiment with Black Licorice Ink. I added Journey Glaze over each of the words. Next, I adhered the square panel onto a 3″ x 3″ Cosmic Grape card base.  To create the glittered heart, I adhered a piece of White Liner sheet over Whip Cream card stock. Then, I die cut a heart shape from it. I removed the paper liner to expose the sticky side and I applied glitter over it.  I adhered the heart onto the card with a foam square.  I embellished the card with a piece of Whip Cream Sparkle tape and a few silver sequins.

I made a coordinated envelope using a fun die called Note-Envelope. This envelope fits perfectly my mini card 😉 I love this die because it has scored folds and it closes with no need of adhesive.

To match it with the card,  I stamped the Ink Splatter stamp over the envelope with Cosmic Grape Ink, and I also stamped a mini heart with Black Licorice Ink. I added Journey Glaze over the little heart.

Finally, I adhered a heart shape on the back of the envelope just as an extra detail.

Well, that’s all from me for today, I hope you have a wonderful Valentines Day celebrating with family and friends. I’ll be back soon to share another project.

Thanks for stopping by:) Have a wonderful crafty weekend!

FSJ• Love is All You Need

Last year when I went to Mexico to my mom’s house, I found a bunch of slides that my dad took of the family.  I found one of myself with a cat when I was maybe three or four years old. This is one of those pictures that can demonstrate that cats have always been a part of my life 🙂 Anyway, I scanned the slide and printed it out to make a page  with it. The resolution of the picture is not good at all, but I think it is ok for my project. So today I am sharing an 8 x 8 page that I created using several products by Fun Stampers Journey. Check it:

011817web_allyouneedislove

To create this page I began by creating the background. I used the Heart Wall stencil along with PanPastels to create a subtle backgrounds that blends with the white card stock base. After that, I stamped the cute cat images randomly with River Stone ink. I also flicked some Bubble Gum and Silver Silks over it.

011817web_allyouneedislove4

I added a  couple of layers of card stock, a border and washi tape, that work as the base of the picture. I adhered this to the page with adhesive and I secure it with a couple of staples on both sides.  I die cut a pierced heart, and I stamped a sentiment with Black Licorice ink.

011817web_allyouneedislove3

I want to point out that this sentiment is included in a set called Amazing Day that belongs to the Bloom This Way Mini Catalog (recently released). I added color to the word love with Journey Color Splash Watercolor Pencils . I also applied Journey Glaze over it. I added this heart onto the page with foam squares.

011817web_allyouneedislove5

At this point I thought my page was still missing a few more details. So, I added  some punched hearts, a partial stamped border on the top of the page and a complementary sentiment. To finish it off, I embellished it with some dots and rhinestones.

011817web_allyouneedislove2

I love creating pages for my albums. This particular one was fun, not just because that page was about my childhood, but because I was able to include many Fun Stampers Journey products that I really like!

FSJ • Christmas Card

Happy Monday everyone! I am starting this week with a Christmas card that I made using Fun Stampers Journey  products. This card features the Classic Ornaments Stamp and Die Set, which is one of my favorites. I have to point out that this set will retire December 31st.

Please remember that Fun Stampers Journey products can be purchase through a coach in your area. To find one near you, click on the “Find a Coach” button on the top of the Fun Stampers Journey welcome page.

I began by creating a base card from Green Olive card stock. Then,  I adhered a rectangle of ‘Tis the Season Prints  onto the base card. Patterned papers are always a good way to speed up your projects, specially if you are making more than one card 😉  After that, I silver-embossed the sentiment on a Candy Apple card stock strip, and I adhered it onto the card with foam squares.

121716web_christmas2

The pretty dove want simply stamped with Green Olive ink over Whip Cream card stock, and die-cut with its matching frame. I adhered it over the card with foam squares as well. Finally, I embellished the card witha piece of  Be Cool Journey Tape, sequins, silver thread, Journey Glaze and Sparkle Cuts details. Tip: to keep the thread on place, I stapled it on each side with a Brush Silver Staple, and I add a dot of Journey Glaze underneath the thread bow.

FSJ• Brrr! Snow Buddy Card

Hello! This is the time of the year when the days are very cold, and the only thing you want to  do is to stay home! Today I had the perfect excuse to stay home and craft for a little bit, so I created  a card  featuring some Fun Stampers Journey products. The stamp set that I used is called Snow Buddy and I have to point out that this is a set that has a coordinating die set. You can buy them separately or as a bundle! Fun Stampers Journey products can be purchase through a coach in your area. To find one near you, click on the “Find a Coach” button on the top of the Fun Stampers Journey welcome page.

121116web_brr

I began by using a Color Splash Sheet and Journey Color Splash Watercolor Pencils to create the background of this card.  I wasn’t sure how to cover a large area with color, so I had to practice a little bit, and I ended up just doing long strokes of color from top to bottom using a large Blending Brush . I did first a layer of blue, and then red. I repeated the steps until I was pleased with the results. After that, I white-embossed the snowflakes. Then,  I matted this panel with Cranberry Bliss card stock. I tied Journey Twine Licorice Twist around the background panel and I adhered it over a Huckleberry Fusion base card.

121116web_brr2

The cute buddy was simply stamped over Whip Cream card stock with Black Licorice ink, and colored with watercolor pencils as well.  I  die cut it with its matching die, and I added Journey Glaze and Sparkle Cuts details. Then, I adhered this piece onto the card with foam squares. Finally, I added a sentiment, some Holiday Elements, sequins and rhinestones.

Yesterday we had some snow, not a lot, but just enough to make me want to stay home. My husband and I took our Shelby for a walk this morning (she is always happy to go outside.)  We are having  a second round of snow, and temperatures will drop drastically by Wednesday 😦 For sure we will all be bundled up like the little buddy of my card 🙂

FSJ • Season’s Greetings Card

Hello everyone! I am back today just to share a card that features a stamp set bundle called Robin Holiday, and I paired it with some other fabulous products by Fun Stampers Journey.

112216web_seasonsgreetings5

The stamp  set includes two pretty Robin images as well as some matching sentiments. These are the perfect images to color using your favorite coloring technique. In this case I used the Journey Color Splash Watercolor Pencils, which are super fun to use.

Anyway, I began by creating a card base, and a stamped background panel. The background stamp that I used is called  Striped Love Stamp . This large background was stamped over Cool Pool card stock with Cool Pool ink. Then I layered it over the card base. I created a pierced panel using the Pocket Cuts die set and Whip Cream card stock. I adhered this panel over the background.

112216web_seasonsgreetings6

I stamped the pretty bird over Whip Cream card stock with Black Licorice Ink. These images are quite detailed, so this makes the coloring part even easier. After the coloring part was done, I die cut the image with its matching die.  I also stamped a sentiment over Whip Cream card stock and I die cut it into an oval.

112216web_seasonsgreetings4

Using Journey Thread Gold I created a couple loops onto the card, and then I adhered the bird image and sentiment using some Journey Foam Squares.  To finish off this card,  I flicked Gold silk over it,  I added some Journey Glaze and Sparkle cuts details, as well as some  Holiday Sequins.

Please be sure to visit the Fun Stampers Blog for inspiration, tips and ideas. They are  currently  having a promotion on planners and products now through December 31st.  The have put together bundles,  either size personal or the A5 planner (like the one I am showing today).  Please be sure to visit the FSJ store to see the amazing  bundles by clicking on the image below:

FSJ • December Planner Pages

I have been planning a little bit ahead for the coming Winter break just because we will spend some of those days visiting good friends in Florida, so I prepared a couple of pages for that specific week. I decorated these pages more than normal, thinking that maybe I can use some of the components  as part of a Christmas scrapbooking layout, that I will be making after the Holidays.

112216web_plannerbuffet6

To begin, I partially covered the days of the week on the left with card stock, just to make them different, and I stamped a few images here and there. I also adhered a border over the rings side.  As you can see, I haven’t finished writing everything because I am still in the planning stage of the activities with our friends 🙂 The planner that I am using today is a size A5, which is bigger with lots of space for your notes.

112216web_plannerbuffet4

Between the two pages of the week, I included and acetate page, which was layered with a Holiday prints panel and a Notebook page. I embellished that side with a stamped image, a paper clip and sequins.  If I need more space for a list or notes, I can always use the back of the printed paper to add another notebook page 🙂

112216web_plannerbuffet1

The right side shows the Fun Sleeve shape.  I love this die template. You can embellish it as you wish and use it to keep important little things there. I am going to use it to hold the tickets of the places that we are going to visit.

112216web_plannerbuffet3

Just by  adding small details like the paper clip and scalloped edge, you can enhance your projects, it is fun and sometimes paper scraps work perfectly for this purpose.

112216web_plannerbuffet5

Behind the sleeve, I included another partial page that holds a photo frame. This is another of my favorites die templates!  I decorated it  with a few die cut elements, drops and sequins. Making you planner pages can be so much fun! 🙂

Currently  Fun Stampers Journey is having a promotion on planners and products now through December 31st.  The have put together bundles,  either size personal or the A5 planner (like the one I am showing today).  Please be sure to visit the FSJ store to see the amazing  bundles by clicking on the image below:
